Endress+Hauser has opened new training centers in Mobile, Alabama, and Matthews, North Carolina. The new centers teach fundamental, theoretical, and practical knowledge about instrumentation and application technology, with an emphasis on service and maintenance of the instrumentation. Training is combined with hands-on experience.
While Endress+Hauser process instruments are used in these schools, the training is designed to address instrumentation in a generic fashion with emphasis on theory and technology, rather than product specifics. All course attendees receive clear training materials and text, where applicable. Each course consists of approximately 50% to 60% lectures, presentations, oral and written exams, and 40% to 50% hands-on training.
All instructors are seasoned professionals with years of real-world measurement application and troubleshooting experience and will be available to spend additional time with students at the end of each day to go over any concepts on which they are unclear or want to understand in greater depth. The hands-on or lab portions of the class are conducted by breaking the overall class into manageable groups of three to four students.
Courses include basic and advanced schools in instrumentation, pH and conductivity measurements, liquid analytical measurements, flow, level, pressure and temperature, Proifbus PA, and time of flight measurements. Basic schools provide a basic understanding of measurement techniques, while advanced courses add extensive hands-on work with actual instrumentation.
